Margaret River has established an international reputation for high quality chardonnay. The Cape Mentelle style draws inspiration from traditional methods to produce a wine displaying aromatic complexity and a fine, textured palate with a long, clean finish.
Fruit is predominantly sourced from Cape Mentelle’s Chapman Brook Vineyard located in the cooler Southern half of Margaret River. The Chardonnay is both spurred and cane-pruned and vertical shoot positioned producing an upright open canopy. The majority of these vineyards are planted to the Mendoza (Gin Gin) clone of chardonnay, which has proven to be particularly successful in the Margaret River region.
Hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed, wild-fermented. Gleaming straw-green; it takes a millisecond for its flavour mass to reach every corner of the mouth. Has gained further complexity since first tasted in Mar '19, with a twist of grapefruit zest joining white fleshed stone fruit.
